User avatar Hello,
If you are having regular, unprotected sex there is a good chance you could become pregnant within a matter of months (if that long). Two weeks before the period is considered the most likely time for conception to occur.

I would recommend discussing birth control options with your health care provider or family planning clinic. Pregnancy is best for all involved when the timing is right and you are ready in all ways.

Best wishes.

I had unprotected sex a week before my period and i'm wondering if it's possible to be pregnant?
 Debbie Miller, RN - Mon Sep 21, 2009 4:42 pm

User avatar Hello,
There is always a possibility because a woman's ovulation date can vary considerably, but this would be a less likely time. In someone with regular cycles, days 8 - 19 of her cycle are the most fertile times. Day 20 to the next period are considered "safe" days for most women. You start counting on the first day of the last period as day one.

If your period does not begin when you expect it, you should be able to get an accurate home pregnancy test a few days after that.

Best wishes.
